Armourers General Tools
In this section you will find Armourers General Tools. The majority of these tools are hand tools as issued to Armourers as part of general basic or supplementary tool kits, or tools which are specifically designed for use in repairing or cleaning weapons, but which are not specific to a particular weapon or series of weapons. Where original tools are no longer available reproduction tools may be included in this sub-section, however, where this is the case they will always be described as such. Occasionally tools designed and made by or for us to our own patterns will be included if we think that they have something to offer over the issue pattern tools, or where no specific tool exists. Where this is the case these tools will be described as 'replacement' tools rather than reproduction. Whilst we will guarantee reproduction or replacement tools as being fit for purpose (subject to normal wear and tear and when used for their intended purpose) for a period of 6 months from date of purchase, original tools offered here (unless specifically stated otherwise) are offered as collectors curios only. As we have no way of knowing their history or the original conditions under which they were manufactured, common sense must be exercised before and when using these tools for their originally intended, or other, purpose.
Please note; Armourers DRIFTS or PUNCHES as may be offered here from time to time, are, by their nature, subjected to severe stresses in use. We strongly recommend the use of eye protection when using them. Additionally, used carefully they may last for several years of frequent use, however these are regarded within the Armourers tool kits as 'consumable' items and depending on the job in hand and the amount of force used may snap or distort the first time they are used, or at any time in their life. No guarantees of any sort are offered with these items!
